Students in grades K–12 may purchase lunch for $2.75 and breakfast for $1.50 in grades K–5 and $1.75 in grades 6-8. Students who qualify under the U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines may receive meals free or at the reduced price of $.40 for lunch. Breakfast is served at no cost for students who qualify for free or reduced price meals.
Lunch payments may be made in any of the following ways:
Cash or checks may be sent to school with your child. Please send payments in sealed envelopes with the student’s legal name, school, teacher, and the amount of the deposit plainly printed on the front. Payments made in this manner may take three to four days to be deposited into accounts.
Checks may also be mailed to the Superintendent of Schools Office at 130 Wescott Road, South Portland, Maine 04106. Please indicate the child’s name and the amount of money to be deposited. This method may also take 3 to 4 days to be reflected in student accounts.
Please make out all checks to "South Portland School Nutrition Program."
The quickest payment method is to log in to MySchoolBucks.com Parents/Guardians must create a unique account to use this service, but will then be able to see student account information for the past 60 days. MySchoolBucks accepts deposits via Visa or MasterCard credit and debit cards.
Because federal regulations allow one breakfast and one lunch per student each day, each student must have their own account. We are unable to have “family accounts.”
